USB connection - Phone detects connection but computer fails to show drive. :(
I have a new problem now while connecting my phone to my computer. Two days back I disabled password protect in my phone and since then, when ever I connect my phone to computer via the USB cable, the phone detects and shows me options like USB Storage / Synch / Charge only.
I select USB Storage but my computer wouldnt show my memory card
I tried changing the blackberry cable and tried different usb ports. Also tried the blackberry fix "CaliFix.exe" but still didnt help.
The phone detects the USB connection and displays the option but my computer fails to display my memory card.
I use my phone to transfer files between computer this has been frustrating me since the issue has happened.
Any help would be appreciated.

Technical time: Click your Start Menu on the PC. Right Click the "Computer" icon and select "Manage". Now select "Disk Management". Can you see the Blackberry listed at all? Maybe with an error on it, or mention of the wrong format?
Have you tested that MicroSD card anywhere yet? Different reader, different PC, etc.
Have you tried pulling the SD Card out and cleaning the contacts?

When you see it in Disk Management, does it have a drive letter allocated?
If not, try RIGHT CLICK and "Change drive letter and paths". Then pick a different letter for the OS to use.
You will not damage anything on the card with the above action. This just tells the PC which letter you want to use.
(Even if a letter is shown for the drive, you can still try changing it see if that helps)

@shrutikamtekar: Not sounding good. Can you get hold of a card reader to test the SD card outside of the phone?
Clean the card contacts. Check it looks okay.
I hope those "Blackberry drivers" came from RIM directly and not a random google as there is some odd scams out there.
A test. Plug the phone into a different USB port on the PC and watch the phone screen. Do you see the little menu for [USB Device, Sync, Charge] appear on the phone? If yes, select USB mode. Do you see the USB drive appear in windows now?
Have you tried a different computer?

I'm having the same issue with my Z10 drives not showing in Computer or via the Disk Manager The Z10 says its connected to a computer, I tried "Autodetect" and "COnnect to WIndows PC" and still nothing BlackBerry Link is also unable to transfer files to it It just keeps saying "Preparing to sync". I gave it 10 minutes and it kept giving this message.
